Monarch 35.5-in x 60-in Cappuccino Left or Right Side Shelf Desk is rated
Rated 4 out of
Good for small areas
PROS: I was looking for a desk that would fit nicely in a corner spot - this one fits perfectly. If you want drawers, obviously this unit is not for you. The cubby holes store pictures and other personal items nicely. It's an attractive unit. Quality appears quite good. No issues with damage out of the box.
CONS: The keyboard drawer is small, it does not fit both the keyboard and the mouse at the same time (I have a nice Razer keyboard, a bit bigger than most, but not by much#. The outside frame is in the way when you put the mouse on the shelf to the side. It could use more elbow room #longer desk top/keyboard drawer#. I have to slide the keyboard drawer out and push the keyboard off the edge a bit for them both to fit. Set up took about 2 hours #mostly putting pegs and screws in all the pieces first). Once the pegs/screws are installed in all the individual pieces, it is quite easy to put together.
The only reason Features is a low mark is because there is not much too it - just cubby holes. Overall I am happy with this purchase.
